Edwardian Wrapper Dress

From the seller:

Here we have a very different and unusual dress. I think it might

have been a maternity dress but I am not sure.

I love this black and white material.

There is a double layered collar ,could also be pined up so

it would be a high neck.

Cuffs on sleeves double layered as well.

The dress buttons down all the way to the ruffles.

For easy step in.

There is a soft bustle back and the dress is 3 1/2"

longer in the back.

The sweet pockets and the attached self belt finishes

off this great dress.

Material : Black and white dotted swiss handkerchief linen

Label :None

Lined : no

Size : S

Waist : 29"

Bust :34"

Length : 54"

Sleeves : 22"

Across back between shoulders : 12"

Armpit opening :7 1/4"

Cuff opening :5"

Condition :Great

Absolutely in great condition. Totally wearable.

From Me:

It's the side picture that helped greatly in dating this dress. See how the back of the skirt is a bit longer? That plus the style of the sleeves, the way the front is constructed, make me think this is from the mid to late 1900's (meaning 1905-1910). Quite an interesting print!
